Sunday Zine Review #36: Mr. Spoqui #36

Amanda Baeza, one of the founders of Mr. Spoqui, sent me a copy of their latest issue this week.

Mr. Spoqui is probably one of the most original zines I've seen in a while. On the cover, the first thing you notice is the phrase "Family Zine" placed under the title. This publication is put together by 4 Chilean siblings who are currently living in Portugal (the zine is composed of English, Spanish and Portoguese texts)

Amanda (21), Milena (19), Blanca (16) and Tiago (13) create a new zine around a different topic every two months.

The theme for this issue is Ceramics. It's great to see how the 4 siblings work together, creating the articles, illustrations and even comics that take part of the zine.

This issue features interviews with several ceramic artists - including Giorgio Di Palma - texts related to this art discipline and a bunch of great photos and drawings.

Don't forget to follow Mr. Spoqui on Twitter and find out more about the zine on their site.

Labels are wrong?

True! Thanks for letting me know! Just changed them.

Somehow, it happens sometimes when you include hyperlinks in the text, it changes the labels...
